Chili Cook-Off raises more than $2,000 to fight cancer February 27th, 2013
Woods Bros Realty agents and staff helped to raise more than $2,000 during the fourth annual Soup or Chili Cook-off for Cancer Wednesday in Lincoln.
The Chili Cook-Off raised $2,190 for the American Cancer Society through voting beans and cookbooks sold. The group has raised a total of nearly $8,000 to date.
This year the Celebrity Judge Award went to Karalyn Hoefer of the Woods Bros Realty Wilderness Hills office for her Southwest corn chowder. Celebrity judges were Channel 8 Eyewitness News Anchor Rod Fowler, Country Club of Lincoln Executive Chef Lorin Dagel, and Miss Star City Kalyssa Hoefer.
The People’s Choice Award (with the most beans) went to Donna Melichar of the HOME Real Estate Pine Lake office. Deb Wagner of the Woods Bros Realty Lincolnshire Square office won second place, and Regina Kastrup of the HOME North office won third. Voters were made up of Woods Bros and HOME agents and staff, along with staff from Nebraska Land Title and Abstract, HomeServices Lending, HomeServices of Nebraska Insurance and Larabee School of Real Estate.
“We’ve had a lot of cancer within our organization, and it’s just affected so many families, so many agents, that we wanted to do something,” HomeServices of Nebraska CEO Gene Brake said. “This was our way of participating and trying to help find a cure.”
The 2013 participants from Woods Bros were: Deb Wagner, Lincolnshire Square; Karalyn Hoefer, Wilderness Hills; and Jo Deyong, Country Club Plaza. Connie Hain represented the Support Services office, and Samantha Kinnett and Mary Pro cooked for NLTA.
Channel 8 covered the event as well.
